[movies]Fire Potential Index - Data provided by the at the University of Montana. Additional animation by Robert Simmon.
Smoke and flame continue to color the skies over large portions of the western United States. Limited rainfall and scorching temperatures have created ideal conditions for fires, and weary firefighters are struggling to combat the blazes.This image shows fire danger around the United States, based on data collected between July 20th and 27th, 2000. (The animation shows a sequence of eight-day measurements, running from April 28th to July 27th, 2000.) Red areas indicate where fire potential is gr...

[image]Fires in the Southeastern United States - NASA image courtesy the Goddard Space Flight Center
Dozens of fires were burning in the Southeast on March 15, 2006, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over the region. Places where the sensor detected actively burning fires are marked in red. According to reports from the National Interagency Fire Center from March 16, numerous types of fires were burning in the Southeast, including prescribed fires (planned fires that land managers use to manage natural resources), lightning-caused f...

As people convert natural landscapes to human-tailored ones, we change the cycling of water and carbon dramatically. Across the United States, water supplies are under increasing pressure as populations grow. Forests and soils that were once a sink for atmospheric carbon can become sources as the natural landscapes are disturbed.Among the human-tailored landscapes that influence carbon and water cycles in America are lawns...
